CONCORD, N.H. – A federal jury in New Hampshire has seen a video showing that a tax-evading couple had filled their home with weapons the day they were arrested in October 2007.
Federal prosecutors took the jury on a video tour of Edward and Elaine Brown's home on Wednesday.
Government witnesses said the Browns kept weapons and other military equipment in nearly every room of the five-story fortified home in Plainfield. That included a rifle in the master bathroom, a gas mask on the bedroom nightstand and an improvised bomb on a kitchen shelf next to a cookie jar.
The Browns are on trial for allegedly amassing and threatening to use the arsenal against federal agents trying to arrest them to serve prison sentences for tax evasion.
